Anderson Group Experiences IMMAP
Fortunately for AGBI, we were able to experience and apply its lessons through the Business Development Executive – Philippines of the company, Gene Jardeleza, who attended the seminar.
“I realized that the whole idea of the digital congress is that digital is everything. They also discussed about digital economy where it is slowly but surely happening to everyone, whether in the traditional or digital marketing industries, [we all] should be able to embrace it and witness it,” he stated; after attending a couple of break-out sessions from different speakers all across different field and industry.
Gene also shared about how every digital organization such as Google, Facebook, Twitter were represented by the regional heads. He was also able to meet some players in the industry. “It was a great opportunity to network and to know what networks and brands are thinking.” He added.
